Testimonials

“I came to Richard with no tools in my toolbox to help me with my anger and relationship issues. Within the first hour I talked to him, he had already given me insight as to why I was having the issues I was having, as well as a great starter tool to help me cope with the feelings and emotions that caused the issues to begin with. Every session since has been awesome adding more insights and tools. With all of these things my relationship with my wife and my family has greatly improved and continue to improve.”

“When I came to see Richard I was going through a traumatic period.  My husband and I had done an intervention on my daughter, whom we discovered was addicted to opiates.  She went into an extended treatment facility and subsequently moved in with us, along with her 4 year old son.  Coping with an adult child, a difficult grandson while also supporting her through her nasty divorce was very hard for us, emotionally and financially.  My time with Richard saved my sanity and gave me a place to come and process all the things I was dealing with. ”

“When we began our sessions I felt angry, frustrated, wronged and wrong. I was at a total loss of what to try next. I was quite hopeless to the point of desperate.  It was immediately clear on the first session that Richard has extensive experience with workplace counseling. His assistance with reframing my experiences and providing a reality check was immediately helpful because in my months of struggle I had completely lost perspective about the situation. As our sessions progressed Richard offered practical tools for further self-reflection, rediscovering my core values and building more helpful behavior patterns. These tools serve me well to this day. Once we agreed that the difficulties had resolved to a point where sessions were no longer needed, I came away feeling so thankful to have Richard as a resource should another life crisis arrive. I know I will ask for help from him long before hopelessness and desperation set in. However, the practical tools he provided are standing the test of time and I don’t foresee needed any counseling in the near future. My year or so counseling with Richard was a sound investment of money and time that has measurably increased my quality of life.”

“I am truly grateful for you and all the work we’ve done.

Rest assured (is this a promise or a threat?) when I’m ready to date / be in relationship again, I’ll be knocking at your door for some more guidance.

“I originally consulted Richard when I was experiencing difficulty in my romantic relationship at the time, and I felt quite frustrated because I had experienced similar difficulties in previous relationships (including my prior marriage) and didn’t seem to be able to resolve them with other therapists or self-help books or otherwise.  Richard helped me to see the patterns that I myself was repeating, and he showed me that I could take charge of resolving the stressful feelings in my relationship and, in fact, move forward in my search for a relationship that would engender more positive feelings.  He gave me lots of guidance and homework exercises to hone my ability to access, evaluate, and change my reactions, all of which appealed to my practical problem-solving approach to life.  I now feel much more aware of my triggers and much more confident in my abilities to handle them.  Though my current romantic relationship is still a challenge at times, I do not feel so hopeless and frustrated about my situation, because I know I have the tools to create the feeling of synergy I desire.”

“After relationship problems that I found I wasn’t equipped to deal with, and after a hit to my emotional state that was making it hard just to function, I went to Richard for help. We worked on skills and covered knowledge that I needed for maintaining healthy relationships and for dealing with the emotional impact of being close to someone, and my quality of life steadily improved. Eventually I reached a place where I felt happy with myself and felt confident that I could maintain quality partnerships. Now, a year later, I look back and find that the things I learned while working with Richard are things I use almost every day. The effect of his counseling has been resoundingly positive, and is a huge part of the reason why my current relationship is the healthiest and most enjoyable one I’ve had.”

~ F.

“My wife had just left me and filed for divorce. I was completely at a loss. Didn’t know what to do or how to handle the trauma and pain. Richard helped me find some focus, and provided guidance on handling the destructive thoughts. With his help I came to see the path I needed to take to regain control of my life and emotions, and grow as a person”
